Dear Little Oaks Cheviot Team - Nic, Penny, Jenna, Amber, Deb, Hollie and Jo. 
How do we say goodbye to something that has been such a big part of our family's life, I don't know, and yet here we are, about to leave our Little Oaks whanau after 5 amazing years together 😭 I've delayed writing this email literally to the last days of our time here because it's been very difficult to even start typing this. 
It is the hardest thing to entrust someone to look after your children, but I knew as soon as we stepped into Little Oaks that we had found somewhere so special for our babies, that wiped away all our fears and felt like a home away from home for our children. This was especially because of the amazing kiako that enveloped us into their Whānau. 
Our dairy farming family have been through 6 different preschools prior to Little Oaks Cheviot, and absolutely hands down, you are the best we have ever been to. I don't think people truly realize how lucky we are to have your amazing preschool in our community and especially the incredible team of teachers and staff who look after our tamariki. 
We know your job isn't easy, especially yours Nic, and we are so grateful for how you are always so accommodating to our ever changing needs, for your hugs and aroha when times have been challenging, and how you always care for us, not only as a Little Oaks family but outside of preschool too. Nic, we appreciate all your mahi and all your love and support. 
We will miss you all and the Little Oaks Cheviot families very much and will forever be thankful for the time we have spent with you. 
Ka ngaro matou i a koe. E noho rā. 
Nui te aroha,
Bex, Blair, Caleb, Zoe and Tom Green
